 Facts
 Opinions
 Both facts and opinions
 Perhaps most importantly, in your judgment, have you learned a little or a lot of useful information from the site?

Mi Inventory

...MI Inventory Paper PSYCH 538 MI Inventory Paper Kathiann Kowalski (2001) contends, “When it comes to describing people's learning styles, one thing is clear: Because everybody's brain is different, learning styles vary widely” (para.4). Learning styles are an important aspect to individual learning. The ability to recognize personal learning styles and identify strengths and weaknesses enables individuals to reach optimal success. Optimizing personal learning style leaves room for improvement. Learning styles vary and not everyone learns the same way. It is beneficial to evaluate learning styles in order to be productive in any learning or work environment. In 1983, Dr. Howard Gardner, a professor of neuroscience and psychologist at Harvard University developed the theory of Multiple Intelligences. Individuals have various make-ups, and according to Dr. Gardner each is a unique combination. Dr. Howard Gardner’s theory suggests that there are nine different intelligences. For Gardner, intelligence is: • the ability to create an effective product or offer a service that is valued in a culture; • a set of skills that make it possible for a person to solve problems in life; • the potential for finding or creating solutions for problems, which involves gathering new knowledge. According to the Multiple Intelligence Inventory the results that were strongly identified were Intrapersonal, Logical, and Verbal. Intrapersonal......

Central Idea: Intro Sensitive, caring-sometimes too much, gets frustrated easily, honest, respectful, unfocused, and worrisome. These are just a handful of my traits and what makes me, me. I have learned many things over the last few years that have determined the type of person I want to be and who I don't.

Intro of the Mac

...Amanda Perry Module 1: Intro of the MAC CCT 271 August 21, 2014 Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955 in Los Altos, California. Steve Wozniak was born on August 11, 1950 in San Jose, California (www.biography.com/stevewozniak). The pair founded Apple Computers Inc. on April 1, 1976 with Ronald Wayne. They were responsible for releasing some of the first personal computers on the market. Jobs and Wozniak partnered together to invent the Apple I computer in 1976. They were hoping to sell their first computer to their fellow members in the Homebrew Computer Club (www.biography.com/stevejobs). The Homebrew Computer Club was a computer hobbyist group out of Silicon Valley, California, and was founded by Gordon French in 1975. The group met together twice a week to exchange different ideas about computers and how to make them more accessible to people. The group consisted of many computer enthusiasts that later became high profiled hackers and computer entrepreneurs like Jobs and Wozniak (www.princeton.edu/homebrewcomputerclub). As time went on, the two continued to work on building bigger and better things like the LISA. In 1979, a crew from Apple, led by Jobs, decided to go and visit Xerox’s Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). It was said that Jobs walked away with a vast amount of knowledge and secrets from Xerox that he used in the original MAC. It was believed that the ideas behind the graphical computer display came from PARC when all actuality,......

Intro to Biology

...Adam Richardson Kendra Merchant Intro to Biology lab The Scientific Method 1) What is the problem you are trying to solve? Whether light or dark colors would be more comfortable to wear on a hot, sunny day? 2) What is the prediction you want to test? Light colors are more comfortable to wear on a hot, sunny day? 3) How will you use the computer model to test your hypothesis? What steps will you follow? What data will you record? I will plug the jackets up to the 60 watts and test its temperature. The steps I will take is comparing the light and dark colors of the same material. The date I will record is who had the hottest temperatures and the dark colors had the hottest. 4) Analyze the results of your experiments. With the data I receive it is obvious dark colors observe the most heat. 5) Draw a conclusion. Did the results of your experiment support your hypothesis? Why or why not? My conclusion is it is more comfortable to wear lights colors than dark colors on a sunny day. Yes my results supported my hypothesis because I predicted it would be hotter with dark colors and the hotter you are on a sunny day, the more uncomfortable you are. 6) How does the material of the jacket affect the heat absorption? A material's color affects its ability to absorb light. An object of a certain color reflects that same color but absorbs light from all the other colors. Since light is energy, the more light that an object absorbs, the more heat it absorbs. 7)......

The Study of Mis

...responsible for managing, using, transporting and processing information in the organization. MIS is used to effectively solve problems in business on all levels for all areas. MIS can be compared to the study of Computer Science, the study of design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation of computer systems. Although, there are similarities, MIS focuses on the business environment as a way to use computers and similar technology for an organization. MIS has come a very long way through the years. There are six different eras that catalog the evolution. The first era began with the standalone mainframe. Users would use a punch card to type programs. They then would give the punch cards to the MIS personnel to input the information into the mainframe. The second era came about by the introduction of the hard-wired terminal. Users would input programs onto electronic keyboards; MIS personnel would maintain keyboards, known as dumb terminals, and the communication to the mainframe. The PC brought about the third era. Users would bring PCs to work and MIS personnel’s job functions became more complicated as they were asked to help with problems associated with these early PSs. As organizations realized the amount of productivity gain from having PCs, LANS and Enterprise Networks were beginning to be used in the fourth era. LANS WANS and Enterprise Networks complicated the MIS department further as users connected with each other. The fifth era was......

Intro to It

... Running an organization the size of Wal-Mart is a humongous task that requires reliance on heavy duty IT systems. Some of the biggest IT systems Wal-Mart uses include a Transaction Processing System, Management Information System, and Decision Support System. Its Transaction Processing System makes all routine daily tasks automated using raw data as its input. It then summarizes, records, and synchronizes this data. It uses a universal product code to ensure accurate pricing, improve efficiency, reduce shrinkage, and enhance communication amongst different channels. The TPS uses a satellite system and electronic scanning of UPC (uniform product code) at the POS or point of scanning (Fishman, 2006). The Management Information System or MIS uses data collected from the TPS by creating performance and evaluation reports used by middle management. These are usually used to explain, and assess information collected for financial purposes and evaluations. The other major IT system Wal-Mart uses is a DSS or a Decision Support System which is used primarily by executive management. Ever since Wal-Mart started using DSS, its profits and customer satisfaction ratings rose dramatically. Its DSS is also commonly known as a data warehouse, a digital hub where its entire customer related information is systematically stored for convenient use and streamlining operations (Ohlinger, 2006). This database is the world’s largest non-military database that provides value to both the business......

BODY Main Point #1: A major experience that played an important role in my life was my upbringing. Supporting Material: 1. At a very young age my parents separated and divorced. 2. This made it difficult to have a full relationship with both of my parents from an early age. Both of my parents were and still are very involved in my life, but never together. 3.

Intro Speech

...Intro Speech There isn’t a lot I can say to summarize my life or the things that are most important to me because I have so many people, things, and memories that mean absolutely everything. I have no visuals today because the three things I deem important enough to talk about can be given justice by simply showing you a picture. My family has my heart day in and day out simply because of their unconditional love and support for me. I have two siblings that I would absolutely die for in any circumstance. I proritize them at the top of my pecking order besides my religion. I’m a keen sports lover and you won’t find a bigger Dallas Cowboy fan the guy you are looking at right now, I relish the Cowboys and yes, we always believer we’re going to win the Super Bowl every year. For no real reason really other than we are the Cowboys. My friends have a huge impact in my demeanor towards a lot of things in life, they help make me, me. It’s too complicated to express how behind I would be in this life if it wasn’t for the people who I have met and engaged with in my lifetime. My parents are divorced, I think I’ve already gained my freshman 15, I have bad problems of waking up for 8 AM classes, my car sucks, and I owe money for rent.If it was up to me I’d probably tell you I’m just your everyday American I suppose, learning to live day by day. This will be my second semester at Western, I have really enjoyed my time here so far. I attended the University of......

Intro to Literature

...David Olsen Othello Essay Intro to Lit 4/14/12 Instructor: The Opinionator The handkerchief plays a central role in Shakespeare’s Othello. It was given to Othello by his mother, and then given to Desdemona by Othello. It may seem farfetched that something as simple as a handkerchief could make a person murder someone else, but when I look back at the story that is exactly happens. The handkerchief symbolizes the relationship and trust between Othello and Desdemona. This seemingly normal handkerchief has a very deep meaning to Othello, and when he finds out who has possession of it towards the end of the play he goes into a frenzy. The whole reason that the handkerchief becomes an object of evil and jealousy is because Iago uses it as a tool to persuade Othello that Cassio is seeing Desdemona. The whole circle of betrayal begins when Desdemona drops the handkerchief and Emilia picks it up. Iago had told Emilia to do so for quite some time. Once Emilia turns it over to Iago, he almost immediately goes to work in his evil ways. He plants the handkerchief in Cassio’s apartment. Cassio can’t figure out whose it is and takes it. Cassio ends up giving it to Bianca. Iago sets the second part of his plot into action when he talks to Othello later on when they are alone`. He tells Othello that he suspects Desdemona is being unfaithful to him with Cassio. Othello demands proof of the affair, and Iago informs him that he saw Cassio give the......
